Guys what is everyone running for BB shock pistons and oil? I have been using two-stage pistons for about a year now with good success. But want to try conventional ones. I have seen anywhere from two hole to six hole setups. Run a Med. bite clay/dirt pretty smooth. I was thinking 4 hole 1.3 35wt front and 4 hole 1.4 30 wt rear. Please let me know, as I will take the most popular to try. Thanks.

Hey Bman, best shock set-up I have felt have been 1.6x2 front with dark blu 3.5 springs, 1.7x2 rear with 1.85 Lt blues -35w losi oil in all four..

Thanks, that was one of the setups I was looking at. I think Randy Pike posted this as well except different oil. Thanks again...

Anytime, I have my setup on paper if you want to contrast and compare, I run it on a med/hi bite clay track, and its a really easy drive.

Are you guys drilling & gluing holes or are there blanks out there?

Default setup advice

Hello guys. I am slowly reading through the thread and thought I would post a setup for critique.

I am driving my 410 on a dirt/clay track. Here is the track to give you an idea of the surface:

My main issue is that the buggy can kick the rear end up very badly over jumps. I have to time my jump carefully or keep on the throttle to keep it down. I can fix this by taking away droop but its affecting other parts of the course. Any suggestions and comments are welcome. I can feel this truck is a rocket and it steers like mad but the rear end is confusing me.

On low-medium bite tracks, I really like 1.6x2 rear pistons and 1.5x2 front pistons, 30-32.5 oil in both, stock springs. I got the machined tapered pistons from Nick on oople, and ordered them blank with 6 dimples for drilling. Took forever (months) to get them, but they are super nice pistons.

Yeah I talked to Dave at Tresrey a while back & had them in stock. Why does TD have blanks on the tree? Especially when people run different pistons than the kit?

Just keep in mind, the pistons that are designed for the mos shocks are different, they're not the same shaft o.d. as the kit shafts, and use dammit clips, not the screws so the spacing will also be different..Durango has optional pistons available if you would rather buy pre-drilled, but I dont think they have 2 holes..

I would be willing to bet your main problem is the piston and oil combo. With either the 6 hole pistons 1.2 or 1.3, the front end does not have enough pack. The front of your car will scrub off the face of jumps causing the car to jump all funny... If you still have the blanks from the kit, try a 2-hole front piston. Try starting at 1.6mm 2-hole. In my case, since my local track is pretty rutted out, i need less pack and use 1.7mm 2 hole 42.5 wt in the front . as some have posted, try a 2 hole in the rear, for me its too much pack....

And your video is not working.
